float & trailer Hire


Ararimu Float & Trailer Hire was launched early 2018 by husband and wife team, Dale & Alice O’Donoghue. They noticed that there was a demand for good quality, safe, NZ built hire floats and trailers in their local area of South Auckland.


The search began to find a brand who met that criteria and Float Factory was found.


Float Factory has over 15 years of experience in horse float construction in New Zealand and provide a solid reputation for quality and reliability.


Each float is thoroughly tested before leaving the factory to ensure comfort and safety for both you and your livestock.


Ararimu Float & Trailer Hire offers affordable short term hire periods, from half a day to a full week, with flexible pick up/drop off locations. With no forms to complete, simply provide us with contact details and a copy of your driver’s license, the hire process is quick and painless!

Wanting something more long term? Our 3, 6 or 12 month leases might be exactly what you are looking for.
